    Here's another one. I do like them quite a bit, they feel softer and more feminine to me. I just don't have enough of the right kinds of scraps to make one!

    Lovely idea. Those quilts are so restful. What a great way to use up stash.

    It makes the younger set feel like it is "their idea"--like it's something new. People often rename something old and remarket it as if it is a new design (think fashion).

    I agree that they should be called low value. definitely not my thing. I like lots of strong color.
